About the Event

Rathlin Island lies 5.5 miles off the coast of Ireland. Situated just off the coast of Ballycastle it is home to one of the largest bird sanctuaries in Northern Ireland. An island steeped in history and folklore, it is the perfect spot for a family day out! Many tales of myth and mystery surround Rathlin; perhaps the most famous tells of Robert the Bruce. In 1306, the Scottish King was driven from Scotland by Edward I of England and took refuge on Rathlin, where he watched a spider persevering repeatedly to bridge a gap with its web. Eventually it succeeded. Taking heart from the spider's efforts, he returned to Scotland and eventually regained his crown.
